    I paid into SS for over 30 yrs!

    Why the hell did gov't use it as a "general fund" and destroy a good thing?

    And now they say it is "unsustainable", as if any account you are allowed to steal from at will could be "sustainable". Similar to what some of the states have done to pension funds for civil servants....

    when I was in the 9th grade wewere told ss wouldnt be around for our generation to collect it, they were right. That was 17 years ago, makes you wonder why wasnt it fixed then????

    But?  Wait a sec?  I remember hearing about a Social Security lockbox?

    Has someone stolen OUR money?

    Where are the charges?

    All a scam. Wall Street wants the social security lock box like they want the public education system and everything else.

    If it goes "bust" guys, those who are already on it are voters...and the reaction will be catastrophe for recipients and for politicians.

    The "fund" has been used by politicians, since it's creation, as a "general fund."

    That gives ya an idea as to the intelligence and intent of politicians who aren't replaced after a max of 8 yrs in office.

    Corruption becomes rampant and chronic!
